"Alphabet Juice"

A complete conversation using only English vowels? If you'd like to see one, the "thinnest" conversation possible, visit The New York Times' column, "The Joy of English" and read the review of Alphabet Juice by Ray Blount Jr.

The full title of the book gives you everything you need to know: Alphabet Juice; The Energies, Gists, and Spirits of Letters, Words, and Combinations Thereof; Their Roots, Bones, Innards, Piths, Pips, and Secret Parts, Tinctures, Tonics, and Essences; With Examples of Their Usage Foul and Savory.

Be sure to also read the first chapter of Alphabet Juice for more fascinating and useful facts about English.
